Reverend Asa (Azariah) Fitz Randolph was the pastor of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Pardee, Ks, (now in Nortonville).

The family name is FitzRandolph but some of the family dropped the Fitz and left it as an initial in their name.
Asa (Azariah) was the son of Abel FitzRANDOLPH & Ruth AYARS (Ayers/Ayer).

The first SDB pioneers to Kansas came in 1857. Rev. Randolph came in 1861, from Sagerton, Pennsylvania. He eventually purchased a farm and lived here the rest of his life.

Rev. A. A. F. Randolph, who was born in Bridgeton, N. J., January 1, 1805; was of Scotch ancestry and was married in Allegany County, N. Y., in 1828, to Miss Lucy C. Maxson, a native of Rhode Island. In 1816, the family moved to Meadville, Pa., and in 1863, came to Kansas, settling on the farm where the widow now resides. Rev. Mr. Randolph became the pastor of the Seventh Day Baptist Church at its organization in 1863, which position he retained until his death, June 25, 1868.

Of his sons, Julius was Captain of Company H, Second Wisconsin Infantry, was killed at the battle of Gainesville, Va., August 28, 1862. Eugene was in Company D, Eighty-third Pennsylvania Infantry; died January 8, 1864. William was in the Pennsylvania Militia and afterward served in Company F, Seventeenth Kansas Infantry; was drowned June 21, 1865, in the Allegheny River, Pa.
